House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths
About Crystal Knysh
My parents own our lovely Kailua beach house. They purchased the property in approximately 1986 and my dad actually built the vacation rental beach house when I was a child.
Crystal Knysh purchased this Estate in 1986
What makes this Estate unique
The main house next door is a registered Historic Residence, built in 1928. It originally was the Mark A. Robinson family beach house, the family who has owned the island of Ni'ihau since 1864. When my dad built the guest house he mirrored the architecture and design of the main house. Staying on this property is truly enjoying a piece of history.

The house is in a great location, it allowed easy and private access to the beach and beautiful views from the balcony.
The beach close to house is wonderful!
The house was very clean, beds comfortable and kitchen well accoutered, with plenty of towels in the bathrooms. The house is located in a great part of town and is very accessible to almost anything you need. The bedrooms were spacious. We were there in July, which was hot and humid. More air conditioning would have been nice, but considering we were out most of the day it wasn't really an issue. Early mornings and evenings the breeze from the ocean made it comfortable. There are now flies in Hawaii, unfortunately, so more screens would have helped keep them out of the house. They only showed up when we were cooking. The downstairs twin bed could use new sheets. We didn't use the grill because you have to provide your own propane. We opted not to do this as we would have only used the tank once or twice and decided it was not cost effective. Better to spend the money by dining out at one of the nice restaurants in town. I would definitely stay there again.
Amazing Kailua Bay
Lovely home. Used the kitchen a lot. Swam every day. Home is gracious and large but a little tired. Would rent again.
Amazing family vacation!
The location was exactly what we were wanting with only a 2 minute walk to the beach. The back yard was perfect for the 5 kids to enjoy when not at the beach. The house comfortably fits 8 people with 3 in two of the bedrooms and 2 in the third. The air conditioning was a bonus in the upstairs bedroom where grandparents were able to sleep comfortably. We definitely recommend this home for a relaxing vacation.
This is a lovely property within feet of one of the most beautiful beaches on Hawaii. We were there with two other couples and this 3 bedroom, two bath home was perfect. It has a large lanai on the second floor, right off the kitchen/living room, which ensures a breeze and view of the ocean. It was very quiet, on a cul-de-sac and surrounded by lush vegetation.
However, there are other properties in the area for the same price with better amenities. The furniture on the lanai is the cheap plastic furniture you can purchase at any box store and the livingroom and diningroom furniture is uncomfortable and needs to be replaced. We expected nicer finishes for the price we paid. Also, we expected the house was the only building on the property, but there is another house within 25 feet. It was no problem as the owners were not there, but it could be difficult.
We did have a great time and were overall happy with the rental. However, we will explore another place for our next trip.
We loved the home, the neighbors, the view!
And we loved how close it was to the beach!! Because of this home and location and town, we had the best vacation we’ve ever had in all the Hawaiian islands!
